Many intangible cultural heritage initiatives are depending on public funding that is insufficient. Moreover, systematic approaches to the recognition, management and evaluation of new experiences in this field is also missing. The cultural operators and people that manage cultural projects lack financial resources and expertise. The ARTISTIC project aims to improve cooperation between cultural operators, citizens and financial operators.

The project will support all these groups, valorise intangible cultural heritage and look for solutions on how to make local projects sustainable. To reach this objective, ARTISTIC will develop a strategy with a toolset and services. The project will create synergies from a content-related and financial point of view, particularly focusing on crowdfunding options. In its activities, the partners will also train ‘action mediators’ on how to organise permanent ‘Intangible Cultural Heritage Desks’ to guarantee assistance also in the future.
